I’ve found the secret to the most deliciously rich chocolate cake, and it taste even more perfect topped with this cream cheese icing and fresh strawberries with a sprinkle of cinnamon.  I’ve tried a lot of recipes for a made-from scratch chocolate cake, and this one…well, it takes the cake! Every part of it is good, but the cup of coffee is what make sit perfect. It dos not add a coffee flavor, just richness to the chocolate.

I cannot take the credit though, I found this long sought after cake recipe at: Savor The Best.

I did top it off with this strawberry compote-jam type topping per my husbands birthday request! It’s SO yummy. I plan on making this strawberry topping again soon to add to yogurt or pancakes.

You will need:

1 lb. fresh strawberries

1/4 cup cane sugar

1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

cinnamon to taste (optional)

food processor

 

To make it:

  1. Wash and slice strawberries
  2. Sprinkle sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon on strawberries
  3. Refrigerate  for 2-3 hours or until strawberries are sitting in syrup
  4. Pulse strawberries in food processor until desires consistency (these chunky strawberries only took a few pulses! Be careful, or you will end up with a puree pretty quickly).
  5. Spoon onto cake rich before serving

 

Enjoy!
